Apparently, there is talk of 3D TVs on the horizon. Jammer is irate about it.
Is this 3D going anywhere? I'm pretty sure we've had this fad have its 15 minutes multiple times since the advent of visual media.
What form will this take? The current main way to do it is to use polarisation to separate simultaneously projected stereo pairs of frames. This is fine for the cinema, but how do you get a TV to project stereo pairs of polarised frames? With LED backlighting, it may be possible using polarisation filters over the individual LEDs and alternating the frames. But the next upcoming display technology is OLED. How do you polarise that?
The alternative suggested technology for televisions is shutter glasses, where LCD senses open and close in synchronisation with the alternating left and right frame display on the TV. This still sucks. You're basically halving the brightness of every frame making a dimmer, if higher dimension, image.
